Love and Lockdown - A Pastiche Opera (SOLD OUT)
The pastiche opera—a work stitched together from existing pieces—started as a quick and easy way to produce new works, but eventually became a prestigious staple of eighteenth-century European opera houses. In Love and Lockdown, librettist Catherine Noske relocates Baroque Italian arias to the balconies of the Covid pandemic. Centuries-old arias about love, loss, and the power of music take on new meaning as the occupants of three balconies negotiate life in lockdown.
